Transforming events like a Skype conversation with my youngest son in Oregon ( grade 8) through an app called “brushes” helps me tune into our connection that transcend physical space and time.
This weekend has been a powerful shift. It has tested many around me as well. In my head this morning is the song by American Idol star Kelly Clarkson, People Like Us.

Each person on this planet is in their own journey of self discovery.Right? This photo set is from a exhibition and sale called The Artworks Project put on by Grand River Shows.

The Record Photographer poured all of his heart into the moment. I loved the shadow guy on my cheek. My work is much about the intangible, the shadows and the light.
A few old friends came by as a result and one ordered a custom bracelet from his website. One was someone I hadn’t seen since grade seven, our lives taking surprising similar parallel paths. It occurred to me that he was part of my roots and now part of the fruit as well.

Before my Managing Compliance class, at Conestoga College Small Business Venture Program, I stopped in to the new Mennonite Credit Union on 50 Kent St, in Kitchener, Ontario. Outside, I talked with Dale Snider, Chief Operating Officer briefly as he was taking pictures of the new building. It has been a long road to this day!
After yesterday’s show and performance at Waterloo Region Museum, I was struck at the significance of photo of the Banking Systems Support Specialist standing ready to start in her new position.
The thrift store is almost a high-end, designer store context for other people’s clothes and used things. “Peace, Love, Recycle” on the T-shirts. An I in Eugene, Oregon again? However, newness, shininess and pride shone out as the atmosphere sparkled with the enthusiasm of the end result of many hands in cooperation.
Now maybe I can begin to craft a business out of my energy and interests.
There was a sense on timing, meant to be assurance that business, artistic expression and Mennonite roots do blend together into a edible stew.
I like the HDR collage that happened while waiting for coffee. It would look perfect printed on aluminum.
A studio visit to KW muralist Monte Wright. We were preparing for The Artworks Project at the Regional Museum on Sunday.
I had no idea the depth and breadth of his work! It was truly an honor and to visit a place that people had lived in for 43 years was interesting too for this tumbleweed.
Monte Wright is an internationally recognized artist having exhibited in New York, Florida, Italy, England and Argentina. He taught many a young high school art student the value of line, space and texture.
We looked at his new work. One of the largest pieces was also his newest. In fact this Artworks Project will show work that has never been seen.
On the stairs of his studio he has several aboriginal masks arranged. Picasso was also struck by the power of these masks. Monte Wright paints them into the scenes of light filled nature and man made works trying to seek a balance. The lines outlining the shapes are in black almost like a cartoon but more like deep carving into the canvas surface.
Small intricate collages were displayed on one wall. They were cut from a historical art book from the 1800s and pieced back together.
I loved them.
Several churches and public buildings in Kitchener-Waterloo are graced with his brushstrokes of dancing light. Two that are most seen are at the Kitchener market.
Large, bold shapes with delicate details of an artist that works skillfully with all his heart. See his website at www.monteartist.com
